Though not nearly as common as motor vehicle accidents involving passenger cars, bus accidents are not unusual in El Monte. Riding the bus is a popular and inexpensive way to get around L.A., whether you’re commuting to work or just out shopping. The design of a bus makes the passengers riding inside the cabin particularly vulnerable to serious injury when a collision or rollover occurs. Many buses are not equipped with safety belts, and for this reason, the passengers inside are sometimes thrown about violently during bus crashes. This can lead to serious injuries, even deaths, as a result. If you or a loved one has been injured or killed during a bus accident, you have a right to collect damages from the at-fault party who caused the accident, and our Compass Law Group bus accident attorney can help. You may be able to collect your costs for medical bills and lost income as well as noneconomic losses for pain and suffering that resulted from your bus accident.
There are a number of things that commonly are responsible for causing bus accidents. These include:
It can be difficult to determine who is liable in a bus accident, since multiple parties may be involved. Liability could fall to the company or government entity that owns the bus, or it might befall the driver of another vehicle or the owner of a construction company responsible for leaving debris in the road that caused the accident. Contact our team of skilled attorneys to start the process of filing a claim today. We will conduct a thorough investigation into the accident so that the liable party can be identified, and you can receive a settlement that is both fair and just.
In the state of California, you only have 6 months to file a claim after an automobile accident, and three years to file a claim for property damages – but this time limit applies to the lawsuits filed following your accident, not after filing your insurance claim. If you’ve been injured as the result of a bus accident, it’s vital that you contact an experienced attorney ASAP.
